I have a user with an issue where they get an error message, "This action is only valid for products that are currently installed" every time they go to launch a Citrix app through our Citrix web interface. See attached error message. I have deleted the contents of the Temporary Internet Files folder. I have re-installed Citrix Receiver.

Have you tried recreating the app in the Citrix console? Do the applications launch properly from a desktop on the Citrix servers? Assuming this is and Office application? If this is StoreFront try removing the app from the StoreFront desktop and re-adding it. Otherwise, try to recreate the app in Citrix and see if the new application launches - first verify it actually launches from the server side because this is not a Citrix error it's a Microsoft error.

The applications launch fine for all other users . This issue is isolated to one user so I strongly feel this issue is occurring on the user's local computer

Gotcha - my fault that I missed the single user issue. This could be the StoreFront bad shortcut issue I mentioned if that's what you're using. That message is a Microsoft message that points to a corrupt shortcut. Or, if the ica files downloaded by the client are set to open with the incorrect application it may generate this error.

Your last post steered me in the right direction. The user was not using Citrix Connection Manager as the default app for ICA files. I set wfcrun32.exe as the default program and now it works.

My suggestion: "Or, if the ica files downloaded by the client are set to open with the incorrect application it may generate this error."

End solution: "Your last post steered me in the right direction. The user was not using Citrix Connection Manager as the default app for ICA files."

The problem was clearly resolved based on my suggestion.
